    An uncommon zone 7a shrub that will reach 10-12 ft. It prefers dappled shade but will tolerate full sun in cooler climates and, as it tends to be leggy, it works best if smaller plants are arranged in front of it. One of the distinguishing features is the soft, hairy leaves.

    Your picture will of course be showing but one version of what is a variable species represented in gardens by an assortment of named cultivars as well as Cultivar Groups, in addition to representatives of the botanical subspecies sargentiana and strigosa.
